Stay
About the destination: Caen is the capital of Lower Normandy and of Calvados département in northern France and has a population of 115,000. Caen is a college city and thus very active. In summer, tourists gather in Normandy for Second World War remains and the Memorial for Peace. Caen is a modern city, four-fifths of which was demolished in 1944 and rebuilt in the 1950s and 1960s. However, some old buildings remain, especially churches.The most important places to visit in Caen are: the Memorial for peace, a modern museum focusing on Second World War and the Cold War, the Caen Castle, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe and the Abbaye aux Hommes and the Abbaye aux Dames, a wonderful example of Romanic architecture. Caen is close enough to the D-Day sites to act as a base from which to explore the D-Day sites.

About the destination: Le Mont-Saint-Michel is an island commune in Normandy, France. It is located about one kilometre (0.6 miles) off the country's northwestern coast, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches and is 100 hectares (247 acres) in size. The island has held strategic fortifications since ancient times and since the 8th century AD has been the seat of the monastery from which it draws its name. The structural composition of the town exemplifies the feudal society that constructed it: on top, God, the abbey and monastery; below, the great halls; then stores and housing; and at the bottom, outside the walls, houses for fishermen and farmers. The commune's position — on an island just 600 metres from land — made it accessible at low tide to the many pilgrims to its abbey, but defensible as an incoming tide stranded, drove off, or drowned would-be assailants. The Mont remained unconquered during the Hundred Years' War; a small garrison fended off a full attack by the English in 1433.The reverse benefits of its natural defence were not lost on Louis XI, who turned the Mont into a prison. Thereafter the abbey began to be used more regularly as a jail during the Ancien Régime. One of France's most recognizable landmarks, visited by more than 3 million people each year, Mont Saint-Michel and its bay are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.[3] Over 60 buildings within the commune are protected in France as monuments historiques.

Stay
About the destination: Perros-Guirec is a popular seaside resort, with fine sandy beaches and various opportunities for water and beach sports. It is known for its pink granite rocks which have been sculpted by the sea into varied shapes and patterns. There are three large sandy beaches suitable for families: Trestraou beach is popular for swimming, sunbathing as well as surfing, as it is sheltered and receives full sunshine; Trestrignel beach is wilder and more exposed to the wind; Saint-Guirec beach is smaller and even more picturesque with the presence of the Costaeres Castle on its island in front of it. Perros-Guirec is known to hold many stunning seafront villas and manors, many of which are built with pink granite extracted locally.

5. Brest
Stay
About the destination: In the majestic Brest bay, the city merges with the sea. The port, base of the French Navy for centuries, also hosts ferries and large cruise ships. 60% of the world’s oceanography researchers work in the city's institutes devoted to this field. The Oceanopolis Centre receives numerous visits throughout the year. Fair play for a city that was devastated during World War II. In case you want to learn more about the pre-war history of this city, you should visit the old Castle that is now used as a museum. Its towers and fortifications date back to the 11th century. Climb up the Tanguy tower for magnificent views of the city and its suburbs. Energetic and daring, Brest is today a lively port and university town, home to a fantastic aquarium and the gateway to the sea-swept Île d'Ouessant.
